What We Do

The D2 Center connects out-of-school and disengaged youth ages 15-21 to an educational pathway of resources and support in order to earn a high school diploma and prepare for post-secondary opportunities and a career.
Our services include:

Youth Academic Navigator: YANs are education-focused case managers who check in with their students frequently and help with issues as they emerge to ensure students are making progress and earning credits in school.

Tutoring & Elective Classes: We offer tutoring two afternoons a week and elective credit classes for students who need academic assistance or alternative ways to earn high school credit. Our certified teachers specialize in creating a small, caring classroom environment with a focus on individual students and their success.

Career Navigator: The Career Navigator assists students with postsecondary planning and connections for both career and educational opportunities. Services are also available to graduates.

Reengagement Partnership: We work with Omaha Public Schools (OPS) to reengage students who have withdrawn from school but are eligible to enroll. Our Career Navigator also partners with OPS Multiple Pathways programs to provide services in postsecondary planning.

Interesting Info

We have served close to 800 students, and nearly 300 of our students have graduated from high school.
The United Way of the Midlands estimates there are 10,000 "Opportunity Youth" in the Omaha metro area -- youth ages 16-24 who are not in school or working.
In 2019, our goal is to serve 300 students, contact 250 out-of-school young adults, and see 55 students graduate.
